Doing the Right Thing: A Man Who Took No Bribe

Posted By Web Team On December 29, 2010 @ 1:14 am In Leadership Development,Multimedia | 11 Comments

doing the right thing We at Compassion are very, very proud of Patrick, a Leadership Development Program student in Uganda who recently refused a bribe that would have allowed a dangerous drug to be released to the public.

While Patrick was working as an intern at a pharmaceutical company, he was asked repeatedly to pass a drug that had harmful chemicals in it. In fact, Patrick was offered 10 million Ugandan shillings — enough for him and his family to buy land and a new house.

Patrick refused the bribe and told the company that he simply would not pass the bad drugs.

The pharmaceutical company destroyed the drug in question, and now thousands of Ugandans are safer due to Patrick’s integrity and strength in Christ. Recognized for his leadership, Patrick was offered a promotion by the same company a week later.

Here is his story in his own words.
